Keratin Smoothing Treatment – For Smoother, Straighter, Frizz-Free Hair
Is it possible to have a formaldehyde-free smoothing treatment that really works? Can it really smooth, straighten and eliminate frizz while adding strength and restoring shine creating hair that is healthier and more manageable?
In a word… YES! We want to answer some of your hardest and most important questions on our formaldehyde-free hair smoothing treatments.
What are Keratin Smoothing Treatments?
Keratin treatments are semi-permanent hair straightening treatments that smooth and add shine to frizzy hair, while keeping freshly-colored hair vibrant. Keratin is a structural protein found in our hair, skin, and nails. It’s also commonly found in styling products to help strengthen hair—but the term keratin treatment is actually a misnomer.
How the treatments work is not through the use of keratin, but rather to make hair straighter, a solution containing a formaldehyde derivative or (the much safer) glyoxylic acid is worked through the hair to change the curl pattern and reseal the hair in a straighter position. The solution is then blow-dried and sealed with a flat iron locking the hair into this straighter position for anywhere from three to six months. Keratin smoothing treatments work well on most hair types, and are ideal for anyone who wants to reduce frizz, boost shine, or cut out blow-drying or straightening their hair on a regular basis.
About Our Formaldehyde-Free Smoothing Treatment
Our smoothing treatment is a 100% formaldehyde free, next generation smoothing system that uses the latest advances in science and the finest ingredients that gets your hair to its ideal, most beautiful condition restoring natural shine for overall manageable, healthier hair.
If there are no dangerous chemicals, what ingredients are in the treatment that makes the hair smooth, straight and frizz-free?
Unlike formaldehyde-based keratin systems that simply coat the hair, our smoothing formula is 100% formaldehyde free, and uses the latest science in hair care. It is a low pH system – similar to the level of acidity in lemon juice – delivers a proprietary blend of keratins, botanical extracts, vitamins and proteins, including sericin, a silk protein, into the cuticle of the hair.
These ingredients change the actual curl pattern of the hair and lock it into a smoother, straighter shape. After blow drying and sealing the cuticle of the hair with heat from a flat iron, the moisturizing and fortifying ingredients are locked into the hair, smoothing and renewing your strands from the inside out.
How long do the results last?
The results of our keratin smoothing treatments will last for up to six months, as long as, or longer than any traditional formaldehyde system, but without the dangerous chemicals. By using the highest quality ingredients, without the unpleasant odor, our smoothing formula outperforms and outlasts carbocisteine and amino acid products. Our treatment doesn’t break the disulfide bonds, which can be damaging to the hair, and washes out over time, so there is no permanent change to the hair and no line of demarcation between treatments.
Who can use our Keratin Smoothing Treatments?
Our keratin smoothing treatments can be used on any hair type and texture, whether the hair is colored, damaged, bleached, or highlighted.
What are the active ingredients in your formula and how does it work?
Our formulation is comprised of a combination of ingredients including sericin, a component of silk. Sericin is able to protect the bonds of the hair and lock hair into a new smoother, straighter shape. In silk, sericin acts as cement between fibrous filaments and it acts in a similar fashion in tour smoothing treatment of human hair.
Our formula contains keratin and glyoxyloyl carbocisteine, but unlike carbocisteine systems you may be familiar with, you won’t notice an unpleasant smell.
The formula also contains glycolic acid, which is well known as an effective exfoliant and moisturizer for the skin. Glycolic acid delivers important benefits for hair care products by penetrating throughout the hair shaft and remaining infused, exerting a durable effect that stabilizes keratin over time. This mechanism of action not only enhances the softness of hair, but in combination with our proprietary blend of proteins, vitamins and botanical extracts improves protection and manageability of hair by conditioning, moisturizing and allowing hair to better withstand heat and resist breakage.
